Young, I'm sticking with Richard Madden. He's 26, but'll probably be 29-30 when Batman starts up again

He looks too much like Cavill for my liking but I don't know about the size of his head!

I have favored Joe Manganiello in the past for the role-

Bale did a fantastic job, no argument, but he was the right man for Nolan's trilogy - not necessarily the perfect Batman actor all round. Cavill was also passed up for Superman before but that doesn't mean he wasn't the right man for the job, just not the right man for that particular film or at that particular time.

When Bale was chosen for Nolan's films in 2005, Joshua Jackson was 26 and looked much more fresh faced, I think he's matured enough in looks and acting to pull it off now. I could definitely picture Jackson and Cavill playing off on screen against each other.

But that's just my opinion

I'd love to see Manganiello in something. I was a supporter of his for the MOS role which he lost out on to Cavill (who is a great choice also), it's a shame as he's a huge Superman fan and a fan of comics in general so he obviously has a passion for the genre. The guy is huge too, 6"5 I think? He'd be quite intimidating as Batman. He even looks big next to Hemsworth.

Another actor that I think could do a good (older) Batman is Jim Caviezel.

I like Caviezel... but he looks like he's into his 50s already!

Manganiello, now theres an idea I can get behind. Hes gotten a lot better at acting since his Flash Thompson days, and his look is much better suited to Batman than Superman imo, he just has a dark look to him. This dude could believably kick anyones ass, and thats what I want Batman to look like. It was down to him and Cavill for the role of Superman, so I trust in his ability to play a superhero if Snyder liked him.

You've struck gold when you find a guy for a superhero role that is big as **** physically AND knows how to act. Usually the better the actor, the scrawnier they are.

Completely agreed. The dude just looks like a superhero. And i think he's an awesome actor. He isnt Oscar calibre like Bale, but i think he would do a fantastic job. I'm almost positive he'll be at least looked at for this role after his relationship with WB from the Superman casting sessions. I can really imagine him under the mask, he could be like the Arkham City Batman. Just imagine that humongous dude in the batsuit, hes got the same size and physique of Batman in the comics and Arkham City.

This picture is hilarious. It makes Hemsworth (a huge dude) look like a female dog

You can't put him next to Cavill in a JL movie though. Or maybe you can...

The height difference would be a problem for some people. But honestly i like the idea of Batman being taller. Supermans height isnt what makes him intimidating, its his powers. Batman has no powers, so he gets into peak physical condition for a human, and his height would definitely help with that.

Anyways, Cavill is 6'1 Manganiello is 6'5 , thats not a huge difference, they can use camera angles and give Cavill lifts if its really that important. But i think stuff like that is only important to us fans.

I love an actor that is passionate about comics to play comic heroes. Manganiello is just that. in this article he talks about how he would love to play Batman in a Justice League film. http://screenrant.com/joe-manganiell...d-benm-182958/

Well I'm sure camera tricks and such would serve to minimise the obvious height difference between Cavill and Manganiello, if he was ever cast as Batman in JL. That picture above has a weird perspective where he's in the foreground, but even the normal one shows him noticeably bigger than Hemsworth.



It's hard to get any recent pics of Manganiello where he is clean shaven or has short hair, he's pretty much hairy all the time for True Blood and his recent film roles. But here's a couple more pics to show him suited up. There's no doubt he would be a physically intimidating Batman, but he would also need to be a believable Bruce Wayne.





He's also one of these guys who's huge but manages to hide his muscle mass well when in suits etc.

How would it work though? Batman shrinking and or Superman sprouting between shots and movies?

Tom Cruise is very short, but he doesn't always look that way on screen.

RDJ isn't that tall either, but he doesn't look that tiny next to his Avengers team-mates.

It's all about the camera angles and lifts in shoes.

I see.

So as you said, could Manganiello pull it off?

I can see why Cavill won the role of Superman, Synder explained him having this innocence about him.

And I can see Manganiello being more suited for Bats. But I haven't seen enough of him to judge if he's good enough or not.

Kinda like your idea of a little boy playing Batman. Its BatMAN, Nicholas Hoult would make a good Robin but he still looks like a sissy. I dont want a sissy Batman.
i don't really want him to be bats. i just put his name out there. probably in ten years, kinda like cavill for returns. i want gosling to play bruce wayne.

as far as mags, he would dwarf cavill, maybe if hammer was supes, he'd be an ideal bats.

None of us really know but he was allegedly up against Cavill for the MOS role, so Snyder must have saw something in him. Even though he didn't get the role in the end, that still placed him above many others who wanted it.
